So he is sorry his unconstitutional harassment and pursuit of a news reporter was not done using more polite language? As if your mugger would be less despicable had he included the word 'please' when demanding your money?
There have been two cases in the U.S. of people contracting Ebola and the so called 'experts' cannot tell us how they got it. Clearly there is way to contract this decease that the experts do not know about. The best they can do is tell us that the precautions they put in place to prevent the spread of Ebola were not equate to prevent its spread to at least two people who followed their advice. If they cannot tell us how these unfortunate people got it, they cannot tell us how they did not get it.
If, as Democrats contend, racism is still the reason blacks should vote for Democrats, what did they gain by voting for Democrats in the past in order to combat racism? Even if you believe that it was Republican opposition and obstinacy that prevented the Democrats from delivering on their promise should you not, at some point, require them to offer you a more detailed and substantive plan regarding how, this time around, they will overcome that rather than simply putting them in office? Would you go back time and time again to the same doctor offering you the same treatment for your illness because you are still just as ill as you were when you first went to him?

To Republicans liberty means the freedom to be responsible for own best interests. To Democrats, liberty means the freedom from being responsible for your own best interests. We don't talk the same language even when we converse in English.

To be sure. It is also the way to combat the influence of money in Wash rather than 'campaign finance reform' but it still needs to be done over the influence of the Democrat dominated bureaucracy. The alternative is a bit counterproductive where the size of government would first need to be reduced by Conservative incumbents in the name of eliminating incumbency.
Um,...,why not bring American Ebola treatment to them where the decease is already established? I cannot help thinking that the real reason for the lefts entire attitude regarding this decease and their opposition to quarantines and travel bans to combat it is just more misplaced liberal fairness nonsense. 'It is not fair that people in poorer countries are subject to this disease while we are not so any attempt by us to protect ourselves from it is somehow taking unfair advantage of the undeserved good fortune we enjoy as Americans and a violation of our obligation for compassion. .

I support term limits. However, as for most things, there is potential bad that comes along with potential good. Our government is huge and the machinations by which it operates are correspondingly complex. It takes time for a new arrival to learn how to navigate it. While they bring in some of their own people who are, most likely, equally inexperienced, a vast majority of our government is run by career bureaucrats. They are the ones who know how it works and how to get things done. That unelected people are so influential is bad enough. What makes it worse is that, for whatever reason, most of them are Democrats. The one danger of term limits that concerns me is that it will increase even more the influence these people have over us.
All of which experience, btw, have been Failures.

And yet, none of the learned experts can tell us how those who contracted this decease here in the U.S. did so. They acknowledge that viruses mutate so just because it demonstrates some characteristics, such as not being airborne, at some point doesn't mean it won't become so at a later point. That means anything they think they know about Ebola from past experience is no longer necessarily true about it now and they have not had enough time to update their knowledge assuming they have even tried.. If they cannot tell us how some people did get it, they cannot tell us how some people did not get it.
Most of the support for Man-made Global Warming is based on politics, not science. They are not so sure that the science is true as they are that Democrats are right.
